Mushroom & Flat Leaf Parsley Quiche with Roasted Pumpkin & Grilled Asparagus.

Friday 18th February 2011

We are very lucky that MS loves vegetables. Maybe unlike other children he tends to eat the veg on his plate before anything else. Every meal is accompanied by them and I try to vary them as much as possible and eat what’s in season.
I’m not trying to sound saintly (there’s plenty of other stuff I get wrong) as I think some of it is luck but I think it has help that both MW & I have a very positive view of vegetables and food in general. We are always very honest about what’s good for your body and health, and what’s not so good. That said, he still gets to eat horrible looking fluorescent pink sugar coated sweets once in a while!
My take on healthy eating is that the key to a child that eats well is balance. Not too much of anything. If you can be consistant with this, let me know how.

So as not to end this post on a preachy note I thought I’d let MS have the last word.
“What’s your favourite veg Z?” I asked.
“Advocado…” He replied. “Is that a veg?”

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    I adore veggies too. I think a lot of it is in how a person is raised; if veggies are at the table at every meal, they are nothing to “fight” about, they’re just part of the meal. Same with sugar; if it’s not in the house, it doesn’t become a staple…but I digress. 😉
    Your quiche looks yummy, and the asparagus looks wonderful! I love the colors and the variety of this meal. Nice job.

    • Thanks Stef. It’s true, I don’t have a very sweet tooth (savouries a more my thing) but it means we don’t put added sugar on anything. So MS doesn’t think of putting sugar on cereals or in drinks (Fresh orange juice or milk) I think, he too, would prefer a bowl of black olives to a bowl of suary treat. I think…
